This study reports on the effect of low-dose ultrasound in accelerating wound healing in matched pairs of surgically induced incisions and full-thickness and partial-thickness lesions in 11 Yucatan mini-pigs after 7 days of healing and 5 days of sonation. Tensile strength, collagen deposition (hydroxyproline), reduction in wound size (full-thickness lesion), and mast-cell degranulation were significantly greater in the sonated lesions than in the sham-treated controls (p = 0.01). Sonation… CONTINUE READING
